PILGRIM ALMANAC. 



[1873 



The Pilgrim Almanac. 



For some time we have had a desire 
to present our readers with some kind of 
an annual publication that might be of 
some permanent value; and after consid- 
erable planning, we could not determine 
on anything that would answer our pur- j 
pose better than a good family almanac, j 
from the fact that it is a someiliing that 
every family thinks they cannot well do 
without. To make a good thing better, we 
have determined to put out one that, while 
it points out the days, weeks, months and 
seasons; the sun's rising and setting, with 
its swingings beyond the tropics, and the 
moon's changes from light to dark, and 
all its attendant signs, teaching our good 
readers when to plant corn to " come up," 
and potatoes to "go down," when to lay 
fence to remain above the ground, and 
when to plant the stakes to push down, 
and a hundred and one other things we 
do not wish to take the time to mention; 
it will also teach them the signs of the 
times spiritually by giving such facts and 
narratives that will be both interesting 
and instructive. 

On account of the shortness of the time 
we have to prepare the matter for this 
our first almanac, it will necessarily be 
more or less incomplete, yet we are deter- 
mined to take every possible advantage 
of our limited time in making it as valu- 
able as the circumstances will admit. 

Our first' object will be to give our 
readers a complete family almanac in 
every respect, containing everything that 
is useful, even to pointing out the time 
when the sign is up and when it is down; 
also telling just when it will rain and 
snow, and blow and bluster. Some of our 
readers may be a little skeptical about 
some of these things, but we shall not 
urge them to believe, as they are not 
points of doctrine, and we are somewhat 
credulous ourselves. 

Another prominent feature in our work, 
is, giving abridged biographies of some 
of our early and great workers in the 
churches. Those of the first age of the 
church are abridgments of some already 
published, while those of a later date are j 
made up from such material as we could I 



find, and was kindly communicated to us. 
A third and leading feature, is the 
ministerial list. This will be more or less 
imperfect, from the fact that we had not 
the time to get all the changes and the 
names of ministers, yet we feel assured 
that it will be a considerable improve- 
ment on former lists and be of great value 
to our readers. On the whole, the "Pil- 
grim Almanac will be worthy of a place 
in every household in the brotherhood 
and be a valuable keepsake to hand down 
to future generations. — Editor. 



BIOGEAPHIES. 

Alexander Mack, Sr. 



Alexander Mack, Sr . , was born in 1679, 
in Schriesheim, in the electoral of Palatia, 
or Chur-Pfalz, near Heidelberg, in Ger- 
many. He was an educated Presbyterian 
of the Calvinistic faith, and by occupation 
a miller. 

After a prayerful investigation of the 
Scriptures, he changed his religious views 
and became convinced that an immersion 
in water was christian baptism, and 
a believer the only fit subject for the ordi- 
nance. Accordingly, in the year 1708, he 
and his wife and six others were im- 
mersed in the river Aeder, and covenanted 
together to walk in all the commandments 
of the Lord, thus becoming one among 
the first ministers of the Church of the 
Brethren; and through his zeal for the 
cause of Chiist, his labors were crowned 
with success. This excited the enemy, 
and persecutions followed. 

He was rich, but for the sake of his 
brethren he became poor. To procure the 
liberty of his brethren who were cast into 
prison for the sake of Jesus, he paid their 
lines, which were so enormous that his fine 
vineyards and profitable mill were soon 
taken away. 

In the year 1720, at the head of a 
large company of his persecuted breth- 
ren, he emigrated to America and settled 
on a small lot of ground near German- 
town, where he assisted Peter Becker — 
who came over ten years before — in min- 
istering the word to the church at Ger-

PILGRIM ALMANAC. 



[187?> 



mantown. His sojourn in the new world 
was destined to be short, as in six years 
his labors closed on earth in the triumph 
of the hope of a blessed immortality. He 
died on the 19th of January, A. D. 1735, 
and his remains placed in the Brethren's 
burying -ground at Germantown, Pa., 
where his grave can yet be seen. 



Alexander Mack, Jr. 

This eminent disciple of Jesus, was a 
son of A. Mack, Sr., and was born at 
Schwartzenau, Germany, on the 28th of 
January, 1712, was baptized in 1728, when 
but sixteen years of age, came to America 
with his parents in 1729, called to the 
ministry June the first, 1748, and advanced 
to the office of bishop June the 10th, 
1753, at which time the care of the church 
at Germantown was laid upon him. It is 
said that he was not much of an orator, 
but with the pen was ready and fluent, 
and manifested considerable talent for 
poetry. He died on the 20th of March, 
1803, at the advanced age of 91 years, 1 
month and 20 days. 



George Miller. 



Geoege Miller was born in Switzer- 
land, in 1722, and emigrated to America 
when a boy. He settled near Elizabeth- 
town, Lancaster Co., Pa. Here he became 
a member of the church, and also called 
to the ministry. His field of labor was 
principally in Dauphin Co., and was the 
first minister in the Big Swatara Church. 
In some things he was rather peculiar. 
He would take his staff on Saturday 
morning and walk fifteen miles to the 
place of meeting, next day after preach- 
ing, return home again, and that without 
dinner, save perhaps a piece of dry bread, 
frequently stopping by the way, saying 
that if we stop but five or ten minutes, the 
brethren can say that we have not forgot- 
ten them. In council he would stand back 
so that the members should not talk after 
him, therefore no great speech maker. 
Although he carried onfarming,likemany 
others at that time, he was also a weaver 
by trade. When persons came to have 
work done, he always made it a point to 




speak to them of religion. Some heard 
him gladly, while others made excuses 
and left. It is also related of him that he 
had an ox stolen and knew where it was, 
but he lived out what he preached/' If any 
man take away thy goods, ask them not 
to return them again." But his neighbors 
had the thief arrested and lodged in the 
Lancaster jail. Being yet under the 
British law, he feared his neighbor might 
be brought to the whipping post, he pit- 
ied him, and the weather being cold, fear- 
ing that he might have no bed in the jail, 
he went to Lancaster, over twenty miles, 
to see him, intending, if he had no bed, 
he would bring him one. Our informant 
does not say whether or not he had a 
bed, neither does it matter, as the act 
portrays the disposition. "He came not 
to condemn but to save the world." This 
truly good man died in September, 1798, 
aged 76 years and 9 months, and was 
buried on the farm on which he lived, 
near the old road which leads from Hum- 
melstown to Elizabethtown. Peace be to 
his ashes. 

For this, and the sketch of Eld. Geo. 
Klein we are indebted to Eld. Moses Mil- 
ler, of Mechanicsburg, Pa. Klein being 
his great -grand -father and Miller his 
grand-father. 



Abraham Crumpacker. 



In the language of his biographer, it 
can be truly said, "Another light extin- 
guished, another star removed to its new 
field of glory." He was truly a father in 
Israel and a light to the world. 

Elder Crumpacker was born in the 
year 1767, and fell asleep in Christ on the 
21st of April, 1859, making him fourscore 
and twelve, or 92 years old. He was a con- 
sistent member of the church for over 
seventy years, and labored in the minis- 
try for upwards of sixty years. He was 
truly a sheaf fully ripe and ready to be

gathered. Of his birth-place we are not 
informed, bnt he died in Virginia, where 
he was much beloved and respected by 
those who knew him, and where some of 
his descendants have been baptized in his 
stead, and are still contending for the 
same u old landmarks.''' 



John Rothrock, 



Here is another old father that over- 
stepped the allotted time of sojourning 
on the earth. He entered the church milf- 
tant in Mifflin Co., Pa., and was there 
called to the ministry. In 1836 he moved 
to White Co., Ind. 3 where he lived and 
labored for the cause of Jesus until his 
departure, which occurred on the 12th of 
February, 1860, making the number of his 
days, eighty years and six months. Thus 
another old father has been numbered 
among those on the other side. 

What joy it gives us when we think 
of the many old soldiers of the cross of 
Jesus who have gone home, and are now 
at rest awaiting the resurrection morn, 
when they shall be called to reap their 
glorious reward. Soon will the time 
come that others may write our biogra- 
phies and we be with the good old fathers. 




Eld. Joseph Emmert 



u Though dead, yet he speaketh," may 
truly be said of this aged pilgrim. 

He was born in the year 1782, and 
spent his early days in Maryland, where 
yet reside many of his relatives. In'the 
year 1845 he emigrated to the West, and 
settled in Lee Co., 111., where he founded 
a large an d| flourishing church, which is 
now divided into two or three different 
districts. He was extensively known in 
the brotherhood, and commanded the 
love and respect of all who knew him. 
He preached publicly two weeks before 
he died, and preached to the hour of his 
death to those who visited him. He died 
with no special disease; but as a sheaf 
fully ripe, he was gathered into the gar- 
ner of the Lord in the year 1860. In his 
death the church has lost a strong post 
and a wise counselor. 



Daniel Bollinger. 

This aged servant of the Lord was one 
of those active workers in the cause of 
primitive Christianity. To him, the sal- 
vation of souls and the general welfare 
of the church was his meat and drink. 

He was born in the year 1780, and 
preached the simple and primitive gospel 
for upwards of forty years in Mifflin, 
Cumberland and Lebanon Counties, Pa. 
During that time he preached over six 
hundred funeral sermons; and was in the 
office of Bishop about thirty years. He 
was the oldest member on the Standing 
Committee in the year 1855, which was 
the last Annual Meeting he was permitted 
to enjoy. After a long and useful life he 
was gathered home with the fathers, on 
the 16th of October, 1855, in the hope of 
a blessed immortality. His last days 
were spent in Lebanon Co., Pa., where he 
was greatly loved by his charge. 



Eld. George Hoke. 



It is with pleasure that we express 
our gratefulness in being successful in 
gathering some facts by which we are En- 
abled to give a short sketch of this old 
veteran of the cross of Jesus. We are 
sorry to commence writing his biography 
with the imperfect knowledge received, 
but it is the best we can get for the pres- 
ent, hoping this may induce some one to 
give us something better again another 
year if spared. As brother Hoke attend- 
ed a large number of Annual Meetings, 
and was quite a prominent counselor, he 
was so well known, especially by the old 
fathers, that we hope our readers will be 
satisfied with the few facts that we have 
gathered. 

He was born in the year 1784; chosen 
to the ministry in 1822, and died in 1861, 
at the age of 77 years. His funeral serv- 
ices were attended by Eld. Joseph Sho-

John Shoemaker. 



This faithful standard-bearer was born 
in the year 1788, and at the time of his 
death, was the ordained Elder of theMo- 
hegan Church, Wayne Co., Ohio. In his 
day, as a faithful servant of Christ, he 
gathered a church which extended, at one 
time, over Wayne, Ashland, Richland 
and Medina counties. This church is now 
subdivided into five or six separate dis- 
tricts, all of which are now supplied with 
faithful ministers, and in a nourishing 
condition. He met an untimely death, 
and ceased from his earthly labors on the 
24th of June, 1855. His funeral was at- 
tended by Hoke and Dick, two old wor- 
thies, of whose lives we have not enough 
information to even write a short biogra- 
raphy. We will be much pleased if some 
of our brethren by another year will sup- 
ply us with material from which we can 
give these biographies.

Eld. John Plory. 

John Flory, or as he was commonly 
called, "Johannes" was the grand-father 
of the writer of this, and he was a man of 
considerable prominence and reputation 
among the brethren, in the day in which 
he lived. His father emigrated from 
Germany to Pennsylvania in the early 
days of the Brethrens' appearance in the 
United States. Afterwards with several 
of his brothers he emigrated to the state 
of Virginia. He located on a farm near 
Dayton, Rockingham county. His broth- 
ers went on to Franklin county, and some 
of them finally went to Ohio and Indiana. 
He remained near Dayton Ya., and there 
on the old homestead reared a family of, 
I think nine children, five sons and four 
daughters. The names of his sons were 
Daniel, John, Samuel, Jocob and Abra- 
ham ; the last was the youngest and is ! 
my father who is living in Iowa and the 
only one now living. The children all 
embraced the faith of the father; nqne 
however, became a minister of the gospel. ! 
Of his grand-children four to my knowl- ' 



edge were called to that responsible posi- 
tion viz., Samuel of South English, Iowa; 
David of Cerro Gordo, 111; John of Day- 
ton, Ya., who a few years ago departed 
from the faith and became a disciple of 
one Wm. Thurmond; and the writer is 
the other. 

As a minister of the Gospel we learn he 
was endued with rare natural abilities, 
having deep and penetrating judgment in 
things of a divine nature, and his voice, 
demeanor, and manner of speaking were 
such that his preaching was very impress- 
ive and affecting. He traveled a great 
deal in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Ma- 
ryland and in Yirginia. In Ohio, the 
place was pointed out to me where he 
preached at one time in a grove at a com- 
munion meeting, when the country around 
Dayton was yet in the wilderness. In 
Maryland I preached in meeting houses 
where, I was told he preached 50 years 
before. As a Bishop he had few equals. 
Daniel Garber and a few others of the 
old fathers were his cotemporaries and 
they constituted the pillars of the church 
in the valley of Yirginia, or rather the 
standard bearers of the great fundamental 
truths of the glorious religion of Jesus, 
and around them clustered a number of 
zealous members from whom hath gone 
forth such prosperity that the number 
has become legion. 

The labors of this old servant of the 
Lord, were extended for many years and 
crowned with marked success; but at last, 
at an advanced age, his time of depart- 
ure came, and then as the tired and weary 
laborer returns from the harvest-field to 
take his rest at home, this aged saint left 
the field of his harvest labors and went 
home to "rest from his labors" in those 
blessed mansions above. It has been 
something likn twenty-five $ears since he 
was gathered home to his fathers 
''dead yet he speaketh,"

PI1GRIM ALMANAO. 



[18' 73 



Conversion admits of no degrees. — 
A man may be more or less wicked in his 
natural state, and he may be more or 
less holy in his regenerate state; but he 
cannot be more or less converted; he 
must either be converted or unconverted, 
regenerate or unregenerate, alive or dead. 
There is no medium. Every man who is 
not converted is a mere natural, unregener- 
ate man, however rational, moral and 
amiable he may be in the common rela- 
tions of life." 





For the Children, 

Here is a picture of a bird and a clus- 
ter of flowers. This we give espe- 
cially for the children who read the al- 
manac. We always want to remember 
the children and give them something that 
they like to read. I have no doubt they 
all love flowers, the beautiful flowers, the 
sweet smelling flowers. God made the 
flowers. There are a great many of them, 
in different parts of the world, and ail 
are different from each other, in size, 
color and form. We read about flowers 
in the Bible. Our lives are compared to 
a flower that grows, and blooms, and 
seems so beautiful for a time, and then 
fadeth and dieth; and our Savior, speak- 
ing of the lilies of the field, tells us that 
even " Solomon in all his glory was not 
arrayed like one of these." ''Wherefore 
if God so clothe the grass of the field, 
which to-day is and to-morrow is casti 



into the oven, shall he not much more 
clothe you, O ye of little faith?" 

So we also read in the Bible about the 
birds, how God made them all, with their 
sweet voices and their beautiful plumage. 
We also read how Noah, when he was in 
the ark, sent out first a raven to 
find out whether the waters of the 
flood had dried away, and that 
the raven never returned. How 
he then sent a dove, and that 
the dove came back again; then 
after seven days he sent out the 
dove a second time and it return- 
ed with an olive leaf in its beak, 
and then Noah knew the waters 
had subsided, so that the trees 
could be seen; and then in seven 
days he sent it out a third time 
and it returned no more. Then 
Noah knew that the earth was 
dry, but he waited patiently till 
God told him to go out of the ark. 
So the Bible also telis us that the ravens 
brought bread and flesh to the prophet 
Elijah during a time of dearth in the land 
of Israel, both morning and evening. 
Many other interesting incidents might 
be told if we had room. Let us not forget 
that God made the flowers to beautify 
the earth, and the birds to sing, and 
so to praise him, and the little children 
too should try to praise God by a good 
and obedient "life. The Savior says, "Suf- 
fer little children, and forbid them not, to 
come unto me," and again, "Out of the 
mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou 
perfected praise," Matt. 21:16.

What are the Children to Eead ? 



Among the subjects claiming the con- 
sideration of Sunday School workers 
there is none, I think, of more importance 
than the libiary. That this is of much 
importance all 'must admit who have a 
true sense of book influence for good or

PILGRIM ALMANAC.

evil, and of the susceptibility of the youth- 
ful mind to that influence. While it is, 
indeed, important that all, whatever may 
be their age or their mental and moral 
maturity, should look well to the char- 
acter of their reading, it is certainly more 
important that the young should be pro- 
tected from what is pernicious in litera- 
ture, because of their evident lack of dis- 
crimination and of mature, intellectual, 
and heart strength. 

There are moral contagions far more 
dreadful than contagions of a physical 
nature; and there can be no question that 
they are communicated and spread to an 
alarming extent through the printing- 
press; and that our youth, especially, are 
in great danger. God grant that parents, 
and all who are responsible for the train* 
ing of children, may fully realize the 
truth, and act in the light of it with the 
same precaution, wisdom and fidelity 
which characterize their conduct in refer- 
ence to small-pox, fever, and all abhor- 
rent and maglignant diseases. 

What shall children read? is a ques- 
tion which all who love children and de- 
sire their temporal and eternal interests, 
and see the temptations thrown around 
them by thoughtless, designing and wick- 
ed writers and mercenary publishers, 
should ask with prayerful solicitude. 
They must and will read— audit is equal- 
ly true that they will not read what does 
not interest them. Hence they must have 
such reading as they can appreciate, and 
they must be educated to appreciate what 
is good and wholesome. We may not— 
cannot — force their likes and dislikes. 
This is sometimes attempted — always 
unwisely, to their serious injury; but we 
may, and must, if we would save their 
souls, educate them to like, in literature 
as in all things, that which is good and 
true and virtuous, and to abhor whatever 
is otherwise. 

Books more or less objectionable are 
continually thrown upon the market by 
rival publishing-houses, which do not 
seem at a loss in finding parties willing 
to recommend them as suitable for Sun- 
day Schools. Purchasing Committees 
neither have time nor disposition, too 
often, to investigate their claims to a 




place in the library — take much lor grant- 
ed, or act on the testimony of self-inter- 
ested witnesses— and thus are introduced 
into almost every Sunday School in the 
land books that are trashy and decided- 
ly injurious. 

A remedy for this, at least in part, 
may be found in Children's Papers. In 
view of the truth contained in the fore- 
going remarks, the write/ has aimed for 
several months past to reform his own 
school, by substituting papers for books. 
I would by no means abolish the library; 
but having provided, as above stated, 
for the children, would aim to improve 
the character of the library, and adapt 
it more to the wants of the teachers and 
adult members of the school. The books 
should be purchased singly, or in small 
numbers, from time to time, as circum- 
stances demand, and only such as are 
well endorsed and cf unquestionable 
value. First of all, books of practical 
value on the Sunday School work, with 
aids to teachers, should find favor and 
place; and, in the end, I would by no 
means discard works of real value on 
historical and scientific subjects. — Exam- 
iner and Chronicle. 



A Word on Family Prayer. 

Perhaps some of you say, "I am so 
ignorant that it is no good trying to have 
prayer in our family." You make a mis- 
take there. It is not grand words that 
God wants, but honest hearts. God of- 
fers you his Holy Spirit to help you in 
your prayer and to teach you to pray. 
Jesus says, "If ye then, being evil, know 
how to give good gifts unto your chil- 
dren, how much more shall your heaven- 
ly Father give his Holy Spirit to them 
that ask him!" Ask God for the help of 
his Holy Spirit, and you will find that it 
is far better than all the help that' any 
man can give you.

PILGRIM ALMaNAC. 



[1873 





The Palm Tree. 

Exodus 15 : 27, 

This tree is called in Hebrew, tamer, 
from its straight, upright, branchless 
growth, for which it seems to be more re- 
markable than any other tree ; it some- 
times rises to the height of a hundred 
feet. 

The Palm is one of the most beautiful 
trees of the vegetable kingdom. The 
stalks are generally full of rugged knots, 
which render it comparatively easy to 
climb to the top for the fruit. Song of Sol. 
7: 7,8. These projections are the vestiges 
of the clecayed leaves; for the trunk is 
not solid like other trees, but its center 
is tilled with pith, round which is a tough 
bark, full of strong fibers when young, 
which, as the tree grows old, hardens and 
becomes ligneous. To this bark the leaves 
are closely joined, which in the center 
rises erect, but after they are advanced 
above the sheath that surrounds them, 
they expand very wide on every side of the 
stem, and as the older leaves decay, the 
stalk advances in height. With its ever 
verdant and graceful crown continually 
aspiring towards heaven, it is an apt im- 
age of the soul growing in grace. Ps. 92: 
12. The leaves, when the tree has grown 
to a size for bearing fruit, are six to eight 
feet long, and very broad when spread 
out, and are used for covering the tops of 
houses and similar purposes. 

The fruit, from which the palm is often 
called the date- tree,grows below theleaves 
in clusters, sometimes weighing over fifteen 
pounds and is of a sweet and agreeable 
taste. The diligent natives, says Dr. Gib- 



bon, celebrate either in verse or prose, the 
three hundred and sixty uses to which the 
trunk, the branches or long leaf-stalks, the 
leaves, fibres and fruit of the palm are 
skillfully applied. A considerable part 
of the inhabitants of Eg} 7 pt, Arabia, and 
Persia subsist almost entirely on its fruit. 
They boast also of its medicinal virtues. 
Their camels feed upon the date stone. 
From the leaves they make coaches, bas- 
kets, bags, mats, and brushes; from the 
branches or stalks, cages for their poultry 
and fences for their gardens; from the 
fibers of the trunk, thread, ropes and rig- 
ging; from the sap is prepared a spiritu- 
ous liquor; the body of the tree furnishes 
fuel, and it is even said that from one va- 
riety of the palm tree, the p?i cenix farini- 
fera meal has been extracted, which is 
found among the fibers of the trunk, and 
has been used for food. Several parts of 
the Holy Land, no less than of Idumea, 
that lay contiguous to it, are described 
by the ancients to have abounded with 
date trees. Judea, especially, is typified 
in several coins of Vespasian by a dis- 
consolate woman sitting under a palm 
tree, with the inscription, Judea Capta. 
In Dent. 34: 3, Jericho is called the " City 
of palm trees;" and several of these trges 
are still found in that vicinity; but in 
general they are now rare in Palestine. 
Palm wreaths and branches waved in the 
air or strewn on the road are associated 
not only with the honors paid to ancient 
conquerers in the Grecian games and in 
war, but with the triumphant entry of the 
KingofZion into Jerusalem, Jn. 12: 12,13 
and with his more glorious triumph with 
his people in heaven. Rev. 7: 9. 



He who occupies his leisure hours with 
only one pursuit, is in danger of becom- 
ing a nuisance to his friends. 

Sorrow is the furnace that melts sel- 
fish hearts together in love.

FAMILY ALMANAC, 



[1873 



The Brethren. 



In writing Church history the great 
hobby is, "apostolical succession," but 
the best evidence that any church can 
have of being successors of the apostol- 
ical church is, that it holds and practices 
the teachings of Jesus as revealed by 
himself, and recorded in the New Testa- 
ment. 

The church of the Brethren, if willing 
to follow up the muddy and bloody stream 
that is claimed by other churches to be 
the "unbroken chain," can come in for 
their full share of this empty honor. 
While they believe that the true church 
never became extinct, yet they look not 
for it in that direction, believing it to be 
the "hidden church" and not the church 
of profane history. 

The true church consists in the " Light " 
or " Spirit of Christ," and that was remov- 
ed from one place to another as the people 
were willing to accept it. It was that light 
that fell upon the eight precious souls 
of Swartzanau, Germany, who mark the 
epoch of the present organization of 
Brethren. 

These were mostly members of the Pres- 
byterian faith, but being fully persuaded 
that that church did not walk and prac- 
tice after the principles as revealed in the 
New Testament, they solemnly and pray- j 
erfully banded themselves together for a i 
thorough examination of the sacred Script- 
ures, pledging themselves to take them for s 
their only guide, and follow out their! 
teachings with the ability that God would 
give. 

After a mature and deliberate investi- 1 
gation they became fully convinced that j 
trine immersion was apostolic baptism, j 
and that faith and repentance were the I 
essential prerequisites; accordingly, in 
the year 1708, they were immersed, in j 
the river JEder, in each of the names of | 
the Trinity, there covenanting together to 
walk in all the ordinances and command- 
ments of the Lord. 

This little band formed a nucl eus which , 
by its zeal and deep piety, soon attracted 
large numbers of adherents and the little 
organization increased rapidly, so much 
so that the enemy became alarmed and 




the result was, they were so severely per- 
secuted that they were necessitated to 
disperse in little bands and flee to wher- 
ever they could enjoy religious liberty. 
This they found for a season, in some of 
the provinces of Germany. But the ad- 
versary still followed their track until 
finally they were obliged to seek shelter in 
the new world. 

In the year 1719 they commenced emi- 
grating to America and organized their 
first church at Germantown, Pennsyl- 
vania. 

From this small center the doctrine, as 
believed and taught by the Brethren, went 
forth and spread until it is now preached 
— excepting a few of the New England and 
Southern states — in every state and terri- 
tory in the United States, though most 
numerous in Pennsylvania, Maryland 
Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and 
Iowa, and now have a membership of 
over 100, 000. 

The following they hold as funda- 
mental principles as taught by Jesus and 
to be practiced and observed in his church : 
Paith,Repentance and Baptism,the Lord's 
Supper, the Communion, the kiss of char- 
ity, anointing the sick with oil, and non-re- 
sistance. They also teach non-conformity 
to the vain fashions and customs of the 
world, not to swear or take an oath, be- 
lieving such things as not being in har- 
mony with the spirit and teachings of the 
Gospel. 

Ministers are chosen by the voice of 
the church from which they are called, on 
account of their known piety and aptness 
to teach, without any prior special train- 
ing for the office. They are not supported 
by stated salaries but support their fam- 
ilies by laboring with their own hands, 
thus " making themselves chargeable to no 
man." When their duties in their call- 
ings are such that they have not the time 
and means to do this, they, and their 
families, are supported by the church, as

"Be not thou, therefore, ashamed of the testi- 
mony of our Lord." — Paul to Timothy. 

When we each other's faces see, 
And in each other's presence meet, 

Let us true, loving christians be — 
With holy kiss each other greet. 

Are we ashamed to own our Lord, 

Who bought us with his precious blood ? 

Shall we not own his cleansing word, 
The Book of books, so rich, so good ? 

No, no; 'twill save our tempted souls, 
Nor let the world our treasure steal ; 

We'll seek to gain entire control 

O'er all that would the truth conceal. 

Take up the cross, and daily live 

In love to him who died for thee ; 
To thy dear fellow-members give. 
The hand and kiss of charity. 
Waynesborough, Pa.
